Jared Bauman | CEO and Principal

In 2002, Jared founded Bauman Photographers, a well known Southern California photography studio specializing in high end weddings and corporate headshots. Bauman Photographers established itself as one of the most successful examples of a customer-focused associate model, and after 11 years of profitable growth, Jared sold Bauman Photographers in 2012.

Jared lives in San Diego, California with his wife Sara and their daughter, Felicity and son, Josiah. A good cappuccino and the Wall Street Journal are his perfect morning, a hike through a national park is his perfect afternoon, and a small gathering of friends and a (big) sip of Bourbon are his perfect evening.
